bookshelves: getting-lost, music, city

This magical book is about a young girl who gets lost in the city, but along the way finds music and beauty around every corner. The illustrations are bold and magical: ballerinas dancing on rooftops, the young girl riding "waves" through the city streets. White and beige contrast bright yellows and reds.

This book is a study in art.
The text is written like poetry and doesn't use complete sentences; in the truest sense of the term "picture book," the pictures are required to make meaning of the text - it could be used to study poetic styles of writing and/or conveying meaning through the use of text and pictures.
